a security council meeting author and historian and jerrold horner says that with palestine's recent upgrade israel's playing a risky game. israel is making a very dangerous wager that its chief ally and washington can be protected from the reach of international law but i think that's a misjudgment on israel's part the enhanced status of the palestinian authority raises the possibility that the israeli beater ship can be dragged before the international criminal court in the hague for various transgressions not only that but the neighborhood of israel is changing with the rise of the solid on the rise of the islamicist so i think israel is playing a very dangerous game in the short term and in the long term the problem is the mr netanyahu does not want a settlement of this question he feels that his regime can continue in a grab a palestinian land and settling palestinian land with jewish settlers ad infinitum
5:05 am
into the future however it's a well known that israel's main protector in washington is declining in international significance because really authorities would be wise to change their ill advised policy before it's too late. and as israel feels increasingly isolated at the u.n. over its expansion policy the arab spring means it's increasingly isolated in its own neighborhood of the turmoil has seen it become the target of more attacks militant rockets and even stray shells from across the border with syria this report to r.t. is fall asleep. there's a storm brewing in the middle east and it's leaving a chill in the hearts of most israelis say what you might about the arab spring it poses an obvious problem for tel aviv they mean and so we've seen just a few weeks ago. plenty of missiles falling on israel form a radical. i dream and we see. already the

beginning of maybe a attrition war in the golan heights we see plenty of the angels in the mediterranean sea israel's backyard has become a lot more dangerous in the last two years weapons from libya are leaking across borders and landing in the hands of unknown militant groups the trouble ahead is symbolized by the muslim brotherhood sweep to power in egypt from this rally in june and ominous promised by the movement to make sure resulin and not kind of the capital at a minimum what we'll see is the free flow of weapons money and supplies from egypt into the gaza strip we will see egyptian volunteers going into the gaza strip to fight that's the minimum. moving up from there the possibility of egypt israel war is by no means impossible but it was democracy that brought the muslim brotherhood to power and our deal both israel and the west came to sounds but both are now

waking up to the reality that things might in fact have been better under the previous dictatorships at least for them we had a difficult situation but at least we had the contact you know with the leadership secondly president mubarak was committed to the peace process the situation today is that we are confronting a new president who belongs to a certain institution a certain movement which do not believe in the right of israel for existence. israeli leaders know all too well that whatever friendships however useful they have with arab leaders it doesn't alter the basic freight posed by an arab awakening that in most countries is empowering militant islamic groups we will expect that these governments when when they will will but pressure not only on the friends of we feel also these. the new changes and the

democracies that is emerging in the arab world will have a tremendous challenges and. in order to maintain. law and order to establish a real democracy the need need some time but television fears that in the time it takes for that democracy to really take root and for the arab public perhaps one day to accept a two state relations with its arab neighbors will get far worse before they get better the challenge now for israeli leadership is twofold to avoid inflaming arab public opinion while protecting israel and also to counter the growing to speak many israelis feel of a growing isolation in an increasingly volatile neighborhood. r.t. tel aviv. and r.t. is coming to you live from moscow thousands of demonstrators in madrid of course against austerity policies which much of the anti government anger based on a broken promise to raise pensions in line with inflation pensioners and the

takes up many hours on the road to becoming a monk requires both hard work and religious to the cation. to become and has kept his part of this preparation. however these beasts get a musical company. they can remember sound sequences you know they want to the sound signals the flutes the herders had in the old days they needed and it wasn't just fun but these meadows didn't come naturally requiring decades of composting to bring the soil up to farming standard this island is mostly rock. the soil here is very thin on the monks can't just get more of it because they're surrounded by the lake so they have to work very hard in order to provide whatever food they need to grow their own crops found their own fish and repair their own churches but the central purpose of alarm has always been religious the main ministry is

5:15 am
a question we're going to have to wait and see exactly what kind of steps lawmakers take and what the u.s. president takes but certainly i'm sure people are going to be demanding this kind of something to happen so that these situations are so they don't happen in the future over and over and over again parents holding their kids a little tighter and a little longer these days oh gosh i'm so glad that i have so many opportunities to . i love you i'm so glad you're mine i'm so glad you're in our family i'm so glad. you're here i'm still so glad that i'm having breakfast with you this morning candles. flowers toys and grief filled newtown i keep hearing on the news over and over about the parents when they. were able to get their kids and had to be told. their kids from school. and

5:17 am
to them that you would like to encourage them. the six and nine year olds held a garage sale with their family after surviving the shooting with proceeds going to their school they did tell them to close their eyes my my daughter. course you never listens so she she didn't and she's pretty she's been talking about that a lot she said she said mommy i can't get that body out of my head i keep seeing people's emotions are stretched to the limit make an end here like make it worth something we could mean something good you can't you could create change change that hard program locals are now demanding. strict severe gun control but really a look in the second amendment to bear arms but. then when it was written three hundred years ago two hundred fifty years ago the forefathers never thought that it come to this while politicians don't have the power to bring back the twenty little

a training range in the country's east and the government in sofia says that this will help boost regional security and assist with the training of its soldiers and he will activist brian becker says ultimately the u.s. is seeking to extend its influence in eastern europe. we've seen that there is a strong motive force to maintain the cold war even without the soviet union and to incorporate the countries of eastern and central europe the former warsaw pact countries into an american sphere of influence through the medium of nato and so i think what the what the troop deployment the creation of more bases there already for. the incorporation of this as part of the nato strategy is one threat to russia a threat to the national sovereignty of the people of bug area because they have foreign military bases and it incorporates buggery it makes it more secure as part of an american political and economic as well as military formation. all right into

the r t world update we go are starting with egypt's public prosecutor who has resigned less than a month of being appointed by president morsi and the opposition is celebrating the move was a victory for the independence of the judiciary and most of the country judges are critical to these recent policies many refuse to oversee the referendum on egypt's new draft constitution which forced the government to split it into two stages this weekend's first round ended in favor of the president back document according to unofficial counting data of the vote is however strongly contested by the opposition which is valid to take protesters to the streets for a nationwide demonstrations later today. there are reports coming out of syria of ongoing skirmishes between pro and anti government groups at a refugee camp for palestinians in the south of damascus it follows claims that free syrian army rebels had seized full control of the compound attitudes towards
5:21 am
the syrian government are split inside the camp fighting has raged on for several days most of the refugees had to be moved to lebanon because of the escalating violence. now the reputation of britain's prison system it's taking a bit of a tumble with reports showing jails have become a revolving door for re offenders and the government has promised to turn the trend around by improving its systems on work and training in areas of confinement but as r.t. sarah further reports it seems there's far more being done than revolving said apologize and. person locks up more people than anywhere else in europe yet where we get a glimpse at what life on the inside is really like and i would describe it as a sea of boredom. peppered with small islands of extreme violence and disruption stretched to breaking point you case prison systems are once again in the spotlight
5:22 am
following a series of critical reports by the country's prisons inspectorate this government promised the rehabilitation revolution the trouble is the revolution things taking its time to get. i don't see any rehabilitation revolution i mean the last government passed hundreds of new laws which were sweeping people back into the prison system and this government is going down the same line you know working people up that's the it's getting people out the difficulty getting them out so much that they they don't come back but despite all the rhetoric say the government's promise is improved regimes work in training in prisons have failed to materialize well as a bit of a cliché but prisons are for education colleges of course you can go to prison as i did you know not only have to hope warmup work become
5:23 am
a vast amounts of knowledge that's what prisoners do. and it's not only mixing with other criminals that's a problem it's becoming a secret that the u.k.'s prisons are all washed with drugs. oh i would estimate. when. it's a troubling accusation given that today the inmate population stands at more than eighty thousand people right now in a person's release from prison they've given forty six pounds but very little of the support released back into the same communities have all the same problems as before so it should be no surprise that also often it's not long before those people and up back inside the figures show is rising for the past years in the number who leave prison to go on to commit further crimes forty seven point five percent of the reconvicted within one year of being released prisons prisons it
5:24 am
seems have become a revolving door every offenders and with all the government cuts it's hard to see just how the situation's going to improve it's obviously it's much more challenging if what you're doing the population is increasing resources are reducing and you're asking prisons to do those taping to stay out of prison within number of published books he's focusing on his writing career giving talks to schools orning children the realities of a life behind bars but with tens of thousands of people released from prison every year until person comes to grips with what's happening on the inside prisons will continue to risk the safety of all of us on the outside surface r.t. london. and i still to come here on our team do join us if you can as we investigate the recent surge in extremism across europe and overwhelming political correctness
